Natalie Portman in Venice, CA

Posted on August 19, 2013

As if Katy Perry’s Lilith Fair getup wasn’t enough last week to let us know the ’90s are back, here’s Natalie, to remind us of that quintessential look of the decade: a prairie dress and lace-up boots.

It’s not exactly an updated take. It’s pretty literal, in fact. Lower that hem to the ankles and she’s Laura Ingalls Wilder. It’s a cute daytime look, though. We don’t know how much we love all that rick-rack, but we definitely prefer her when she’s not trying so hard, like here. It’s walking that line between “retro” and “dated,” but the low-key charm is winning us over.
